Please listen to Old NJ head Zimmer and check out 10-21-78.

I have heard many a Stella and what Jerry does at the end of this version has no equal.

I would also throw your attention this way to a beautiful, quiet version that gets over looked as part of a show famous for other reasons i.e. the Ravenspace show of 4/19/82.

This Stella is gorgeous perfection...but if you want a powerful jaw dropping ending you must check out 10/21/78.

My all time Favorite is 9-19-90...I get chills during Garcia's ending solo as it rises and rises..maybe being there
under special circumstances helped...but that is my all time
favorite...preceeded by my favorite GDTRFB and followed by a nice Around and Around.

a nice lead off to what was to come the following night.

I agree 100% with your choice Jim. It gives me major goosebumps when I listen to this version of Stella. Simply incredible.

Many a night I've drifted off to sleep after a crazy night with that one playing on my Ipod..only to wake up and start it again...in fact...I gotta dig it out now. I only saw the 19th and 20th of that run but man oh man what a time.
